some good cold-weather food: beef &
broccoli stir-fry and baked Japanese sweet potato.
On the other side I have some tamarinds,
almond cake, and a fruit
salad made with persimmon, kiwi, baby
bananas, and blood orange.
Blood oranges, in case you don't know, are oranges
that look normal on the outside - or may look like someone
dropped them in some red dye - and when you peel them
the segments are orange, red, purple, or all of the
above, as is the case in the photo on the right. They
taste slightly berrylike. As some of you may have guessed,
I am fond of weird-colored food, so when I saw that
Kroger had a sale on these I hustled on down to the
store and grabbed a big sack of 'em.
